Lending Services

You can borrow books that may be borrowed for 14 days. You need a library card to borrow books. The library card is available at the card counter at the lending services of the Main Library and at most special libraries.


You can reserve books that are currently borrowed (specified on u:search as: “On loan until DD.MM.YYYY” under “Status”). You will receive a notification e-mail as soon as the book has been returned to the special library and is ready to collect. We keep books you reserved ready to collect for 5 working days.

Items that may not be borrowed

You may not borrow reference works, dictionaries, periodicals and old books, as well as books from the reserve collection for the current semester. Please see the relevant details on u:search.
